Post image for Katherine Webb and Quarterback AJ McCarron Engaged

Congratulations to former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his former Miss Alabama USA girlfriend, now fiancée, Katherine Webb on their engagement!  According to Katherine's tweet, AJ designed the ring himself.       If you don't know the story of Katherine and AJ, let me give you a brief rundown.  AJ played football for the University of Alabama.  Katherine graduated from Auburn University.  Alabama and Auburn are long-time rivals (one of the best rivalries in sports history).  Katherine gained notoriety during the 2013 BCS National Championship Game in which the cameras panned to Katherine and announcer Brent Musburger gushed about how beautiful she is.  Katherine's Twitter followers jumped from Read More ...

Post image for Just Go…To Vegas!

When my Dad asked me and my sister if we wanted to go to Las Vegas with him, the response was an immediate YES.  First, the three of don't get to spend as much time together as we would like.  Second, I didn't have a chance to getaway this summer, so I was long overdue for a long weekend out of town.  Third, believe it or not, I had never been to Vegas, so I was excited to check it off my list.     We stayed at Treasure Island on The Strip, which I give two thumbs up.  Our rooms were very nice and we had a great view.  It's also Read More ...

Post image for What She Wore – Kijafa Vick: Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles

Pnk Elephant Sheer Stud Cross Shirt | BCBG pants | Chanel boots   It's been a while since I've officially checked in with one of my favorite football wives, so at the beginning of the season I asked Kijafa Vick, wife of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (the last time we checked in with her she was the Future Mrs. Vick, but as of this past summer, she is now Mrs. Vick), if she would send me photos of one of her game day looks.  True to her words, she emailed me photos and the breakdown of her outfit from the Eagles game Sunday when they hosted the Detroit Lions at Lincoln Financial Read More ...

Post image for What She Wore – Olympic Gold Medalist Natasha Hastings: Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals

If you read my interview earlier this year with Olympic gold medalist Natasha Hastings, then you remember that she is not only a track star, but she's also a football fan and a fashionista (they don't call her the 400M Diva for nothing!). You might also remember that Natasha's boyfriend is William Gay, a cornerback for the 3-0 Arizona Cardinals.  I recently asked Natasha if she would snap an outfit picture at a Cardinals home game, so Natasha sent me this photo of her and Will from the Cardinals/Eagles game on Sunday.  Let's take a closer look at What She Wore:   Cotton On Polka Dot Sleeveless Button Up | Gap Always Skinny Jeans Read More ...

Olympic Gold Medalist.  4-time World Champion.  Wilhelmina Model.  Daughter.  Sister.  Girlfriend.  I recently had the opportunity to speak with USA Track & Field star Natasha Hastings about her journey to the 2012 London Olympics, posing for ESPN The Magazines's The Body Issue, and dating Arizona Cardinals cornerback William Gay.    Tamara:  Let's start off by talking about something BIG that's happening this summer, the 2012 London Olympics.  You are already an Olympic Gold Medalist, having won the 4x400M relay in Beijing.  What would it mean to you to represent the US in the London Olympics?   Natasha:  It would certainly mean a lot more for a couple of reasons.  Obviously Read More ...

If you are a fan of VH1's Basketball Wives, then Evelyn Lozada needs no introduction.  If you don't keep up with the show, Evelyn is the fiancee of New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (how did she end up on Basketball Wives, you ask?  She was once engaged to a basketball player.).  Well, maxim.com has released photos from a hot shoot they did with the future Mrs. Ochocinco.  (Male readers, don't ever say I haven't given you anything.)  In the interview, Evelyn revealed which of her body parts is her favorite ("My breasts."), which sport is her favorite ("Football, of course!"), and what Chad is like off the field ("When he's home Read More ...

If the New England Patriots had not won the AFC Championship Sunday and thus a spot in the Super Bowl, Quarterback Tom Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, could have thrown a Super Bowl/housewarming party at their new home–a 22,000 square foot, 8 bedroom Brentwood, California estate that was recently completed after nearly 2 years of construction.  The home contains a 6-car garage, a butler's room, a nursery for their 2-year-old son, Benjamin, 2 wings connected by a bridge, an elevator, a wine cellar, a weight room, and a swimming pool and a spa out back.  Their home is valued at $20 million.    I will be on the lookout Read More ...

I recently ran across a book that caught my attention, first by the cover and then by the title.  The cover is a picture of a woman with one heel on a football (shocking that that would catch my eye, right?) and the title is Football Widows by Pat Tucker.  I had to take a look to see what this book was about.  From the back cover: A glimpse into the secret and unique lives of the women behind NFL coaches–game day takes on a whole new meaning as these lonely women turn up the heat off the field.   During football season, when NFL coaches gear up for war Read More ...
